Hi!

Is there any reason why the Creators Club Subscription is not showing up on my Xbox

I live in Norway, but I've not read anything about any region restrictions on this download. I want in on the fun too!

Where are you looking Have you downloaded the XNA Game Launcher

I'm watching the "All Game Downloads" list. For instance, Viva Pinata is there and marked as a new release. But no XNA Creators Club . Is "XNA Game Launcher" the same as "XNA Creators Club" If so, no, its not there.

Hmmm, you're in Live Marketplace | Games | All Game Downloads XNA Creator's Club is on my list. The XNA Game Launcher is what's used to deploy games from your PC to your 360, it's not the Creator's Club. Maybe an MS person will chime in here.

From a blog post on the XNA team blog:

  1. On the Xbox Live blade, go to "Xbox Live Marketplace"
  2. Select "Games" and then "All Game Downloads"
  3. Scroll down the list to find the "XNA Creators Club"
  4. Here you'll be able to go under Memberships to purchase a 4-Mo membership for $49.00 or an Annual (12-mo) membership $99.00. The prices used here reflect the subscription rates for the United States and pricing may differ for your local region or country if outside the USA.
  5. You'll also need to download the XNA Game Launcher from the same area. Having done so, you will find a new XNA Game Launcher program on your Games blade under Demos and More.

Thanks everyone, but I have read the guides out there. Problem is that there is _no_ "XNA Creators Club" item available. Here is a picture of my TV/Xbox as proof

Is there any caching of content items locally that perhaps is not updated If so, is there any way to force the dashboard to refresh

You're looking under New Downloads. You need to look under All Game Downloads under the Games section of Live Marketplace.




Re: XNA Game Studio Express Subscription not available on my Xbox!

Peter Lillevold

Yes, sorry, failed to mention that it was the "New Downloads" in the Games section. Here's another picture from the bottom of my "All Game Downloads" section.

I'd report this.

Done. Anyone else experiencing the same problem, go vote here.

Actually your problem is that you haven't installed some of the dashboard updates hence the dashboard option where creators club should be. You need to have accepted the dashboard updates that live notifies you about when you log in sometimes.

Install the update and check back with the all games downloads section and XNA should miraculously now be there.

Hope that helps

My system version, both Dashboard and Kernel, is 2.0.4548.0. I install every patch that comes out immediately. This version is the november upgrade which included support for XNA Game Studio Express.

Peter you only get the dashboard update showing up in the games downloads if you haven't installed the update. Perhaps you selected no by mistake. Normally the dashboard update is not visible.

Have you tried installing it

I'm willing to bet this is your problem as I have had a similar issue with VGA looking washed out after accidentally refusing a patch. The patch then shows up as a downloadable game. I'm not sure if the patches are cumulative i.e. you only need install the latest one.
